About The Lygon Arms Hotel - The Terrace
Indulge & celebrate with a selection of seasonally themed afternoon teas throughout the year in the Lygon Terrace. Alternatively, The Chase Afternoon Tea is our premium option, using one of this country's most prestigious home grown vodkas. Featuring miniature cocktails & cakes, it's the perfect pairing for your memories and moments spent in the Cotswolds.
Our Lygon Terrace by night serves our Bar & Grill menu.
The grill offers a seasonal British menu that celebrates fantastic local ingredients in a relaxed yet imaginative way. The highest-quality produce is at the heart of all dishes, and has stemmed from friendly and sustainable relationships with Cotswolds suppliers, farmers and artisans to produce a varied menu for everyone.
Delicious afternoon tea, beautifully presented and served. Just rather too rich for our taste - more like dessert than cake. Disinclined to taste two elements of the sweet array.
As we have two dogs, one with a medical condition so cannot be left, we were unable to dine in the main restaurant so we had to dine in The Terrace, unfortunately this area is somewhat remote with limited atmosphere, we were the only diners, table and chairs not really appropriate more casual than we would have preferred.
Christmas Afternoon tea was overpriced for what it was (not sure what the different was from an ordinary one!) Father Christmas was a bit disappointing, saved by the fact the gift was good.
We were surprised that your staff, although very helpful, were not dressed more smartly. We did not think that jeans were appropriate.
Hi Whist we had a nice enough time it wasn’t what we were hoping for. Despite booking ahead the waitress didn’t seem to know that we had specified one veggie and one gluten free afternoon tea. Also we had booked a non festive prices but were told only festive were in offer at a greater cost. We asked for Assam tea and were told you didn’t have that. Really? Assam is a popular tea. The tea came out well before the food. The veggie sandwiches were tomato and cheese. The cakes were lovely though. We were not offered a top up on the tea. Finally I had to ask twice for the bill and on top of the festive rates a service charge was added though it was discretionary. In other places we have had a much better service. Even in central London the value and service is better. I won’t be recommending you I’m afraid.
Fabulous tea and great service. Beautiful building and lots of space. Enjoyed seeing Father Christmas. All great, the only thing I would prefer to give a tip to person who served us rather than a 12.5% service charge.
Loved the setting, stunning old building with so much character and beautifully refurbished. The afternoon tea was one of the best I’ve had, everything exceptionally fresh including the scones and really appreciated having the meat sandwiches served separately as one party preferred not to eat meat, a very nice touch. Very friendly staff everywhere will definitely be back. Just a couple of niggles, we were seated by an access door and in bucket seats, my elderly mother definitely needed more support, however after a request we were happily relocated. Finally, this is for future reference, a young member of staff used the bureau right next to us to start folding napkins, she could overhear a very private and sensitive conversation, which we had to stop. I would just ask for a little forethought next time to perhaps do that job later when we were gone or elsewhere. However I would highly recommend The Lygon Arms to anyone thinking of coming to Broadway.
Great food , good atmosphere and lovely staff.
Slow service and lacked atmosphere. Order beef rib and was literally all fat no meat. Sent back, replacement good but left eating meals separately and no compensation etc offered.
We really enjoyed our afternoon tea that was a present for my Mums birthday. The ambience was lovely, we were able to take our time. The staff were really friendly and attentive, taking time to speak to us. The hotel was kept in excellent order and very clean. One thing that surprised us was that the staff wore jeans, it seemed a little bit casual for the quality of the hotel. But overall we had a great time.
The afternoon tea was poor quality, sandwiches and cakes were lacking and we didn’t eat most of the cakes. A real shame as we were looking forward to it.
Everything was excellent, I would happily return. Service and atmosphere absolute top, thank you :)
We were sat close to the partition for the kitchen which was very noisy and on 2 occasions staff bumped into each other which required them to clean up food/drink. We also asked for a vegetarian sandwich selection without butter but we were provided with the normal menu.
The tea was fine but staff liason fell down somewhere because I have now received a fine because my car was in your car park between 13.39 & 15.59 even though the car was both parked and recovered by your staff!
Good food, good beer, attentive service, charming old surroundings, but pity about background music which an historic atmospheric building like this does not need.
Very nice afternoon tea, 4/5 on the food in all honesty, service however from Beanie was superb. Lovely environment, beautiful hotel with what looked like an amazing bistro restaurant and great bars!!
The food was good, but we would have appreciated more attention from the server. I had to track her down to get the check and when I couldn’t find her, I had to ask someone in another area to get the check for me.
I arranged for this to be a lovely treat and break away for the day away from what has been an extremely busy and stressful year. I called up The Lygon Arms on Tuesday to make the reservation and I was asked about dietary requirements etc. I informed the hotel that I would require vegetarian fillings on the sandwiches and wholmeal bread. My self and my partner arrived for a 2.30pm for afternoon tea, there were no waiting staff on the reception bar and the seating area had only three couples. I went to main reception again and they went to find a member of staff for this area. Eventually we were greeted by a young chap who shown us to a table and brought some menus. We then waited thirty five minutes for him to come back to serve us as he had shown a later couple that arrived, to a table and decided to serve them before us. He then return with a pot of tea and hadn’t given us an option of teas from the menu, I did highlight this but he appeared disinterested. I highlighted with the chap that I had pre requested vegetarian based sandwiches, where he informed me that he would see what he could do! A while later another serving chap appeared with two vegetarian sandwiches and a ham sandwich in between, I then reiterated that I didn’t want meat, he asked if he should take the sandwiches back which I insisted he did. Finally he returned with the correct sandwiches. Our scones came with a raspberry jam and for some reason Marmalade, which was odd. We had no hot water for refreshing our tea and the whole experience was extremely poor and was not worth the two hour journey from Shropshire. I will not be returning to the Lygon Arms and wasting my very “precious” time again!
A lot of confusion over dinner reservations on both nights. We arrived to the wine bar for 8 to be told we should of been there at 6 so they cancelled. Luckily they could fit us in.
Room was disappointing. Dark and carpets need replacing. Staff were great but obviously overworked. Attention to detail was poor. No spoons on table for breakfast no milk for cereals. We had to wait to be asked if we wanted tea or coffee. Sorry to say this but I thought the staff were scruffy for a £300 plus per night hotel or am I behind the times? Wouldn’t return as can get better value for money elsewhere.
Every single person who works at The Lygon went out of their way to make us feel welcome, comfortable and looked after. In particular, our dog was given 5 star treatment from the moment we arrived til we reluctantly left. What a team! I can not recommend The Lygon more highly.
Whilst I appreciate that the hotel makes a point of welcoming dog-owners I was taken aback to see a large dog with the group at the next table while we had our evening meal. I prefer to eat my meals in a dog-free environment as even the cleanest of animals smell. As 85% of families do not own a dog you risk offending the bulk of your clientele
Awful Cc Haydn Fentum MD Had to wait ages, despite booking - table not laid correctly, staff demonstrated a pretentious manner and non engaging, horrible atmosphere. I only pay for the discretionary service charge if I'm happy - but was challenged when I didn't pay it. Leaking teapot. No teaspoons. No idea what the cakes were as the menus were removed. Poor value for money. I counted six members of staff and tables were still left with used table wear. I think maybe if you were a resident, you would have a better experience. Wish we had gone elsewhere to celebrate husbands birthday and spent £50 feeling it was worth it.... for tea and cake!!!
